When we finally reached Ceduna which is kinda the end of the Nullabor we had to go through a fruitfly quarentine, in that no fruits or veggies can be brought over the border unless you have a special permit or something. Good thing we cooked up every veggie we had and had been eating like pigs the last two days so that none would go to waste. This is also where the temperature started to rise to +40 degrees! We kept heading east and stayed outside of Wudinna at a big rock which we climed and took pictures of at sunset.

In the morning we went to Mount Wudinna which is the second largest open faced rock after Ayer's rock, from what we read, but I don't imagine it can really be compared to it at all. It was a good climb at 35 degrees, flys bugging you the entire way. When we passed through Kimba we were now exaclty halfway between Perth and Sydney (the way the crow flys). We were going to meet up with Fancis' mother (Lucy) in Wilmington so we decided to stay just outside the town at a place called Hanckock's lookout which you could see all of Port Augusta and they valleys and river around it. It had been close to 40 degrees all day so getting to sleep was something of a problem.
